It’s been over a week now and the controversy surrounding Roseanne Barr’s comments on social media still has not simmered down, even after her highly popular show was shut down. While she has refused to give interviews up until now she was very active on social media retweeting and tweeting different statements. However, that all changed when Roseanne agreed to go on Joe Rogan’s podcast. Sadly, though she backed out of the engagement at the last minute and people are worried as to why.
The Daily Mail reported:
“Roseanne Barr was scheduled to appear on comedian Joe Rogan’s podcast today, but the host said on social media the embattled sitcom star is ‘not doing well’ and will not be joining him in conversation. ABC pulled the plug on Season 2 of Barr’s popular Roseanne reboot on Tuesday after the controversial actress sent out a tweet comparing former President Barack Obama’s African-American adviser Valerie Jarrett to an ape.
After issuing several apologies on Twitter and blaming her comment on the insomnia drug Ambien, Barr said would be appearing on Rogan’s podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience. Shortly before 1 pm Eastern Time on Friday, Rogan, 50, posted a message on his Twitter page saying that Barr’s appearance has been scrapped. ‘The Roseanne podcast is not happening today. She’s not doing well and doesn’t want to travel, and she’s gone radio silent on me, so I’m just going to step away,’ he wrote.
Rogan added: ‘the whole thing has been pretty brutal on her, and I hope she can find some peace.’ Barr was seen in public for the first time since the scandal on Thursday, walking in her native Utah, in photos obtained exclusively by DailyMail. At one point, the 65-year-old, wearing rolled-up jeans and cheetah-print flip-flops, sat on the ground and smoked a cigarette.
When asked to comment on the recent controversy, Barr simply said: ‘I believe in one law for all people, I love all people have a nice day.’ Her racist tweet said that Jarrett, who is African-American and was born in Iran, looks like the lovechild of the ‘Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes’. She subsequently apologized to the former Obama aide and later wrote, ‘I’m not a racist, I never was & I never will be. One stupid joke in a lifetime of fighting 4 civil rights 4 all minorities, against networks, studios, at the expense of my nervous system/family/wealth will NEVER b taken from me.’
In one of her latest tweets from Thursday, Barr claimed she meant to say that Jarrett was like the character in the Planet of the Apes film ‘who controls human beings…’ ‘I am still sorry 2 have offended my black fans even if misunderstood tweet, and I was impaired. 2 am tweeting bad jokes. I do not forgive myself tho,’ she added.”
Meanwhile, at the same time elsewhere in Hollywood others are getting themselves into hot water because of their actions. One, in particular, is comedian Samantha Bee who has been criticized for calling one of the First Daughters Ivanka Trump a “feckless c***.” Bee’s comments came in response to a social media picture that Trump posted with her son and herself. The picture was posted after articles went viral over the internet over an alleged 1,500 missing migrant children in the United States.
“You know, Ivanka, that’s a beautiful photo of you and your child, but let me just say, one mother to another, do something about your dad’s immigration practices, you feckless c***!” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders blasted Bee’s language as “vile and vicious.” Her disgusting comments and show are not fit for broadcast, and executives at Time Warner and TBS must demonstrate that such explicit profanity about female members of this administration will not be condoned on its network,” Sanders said.
Both CNN and TBS are owned by Turner, a subsidiary of Time Warner. Bee apologized Thursday and acknowledged she had “crossed a line.” “I would like to sincerely apologize to Ivanka Trump and to my viewers for using an expletive on my show to describe her last night,” she said. “It was inappropriate and inexcusable. I crossed a line, and I deeply regret it.”
When did it become okay to constantly cross the line with people that you disagree with? There is no respect in comedy anymore sadly and those who cross that line should be held responsible. Apparently, having the President in office means that Hollywood entertainers can cross whatever line they please. But that is not how it works.

Clooney Claims Trump Says To Fear Muslims & Strong Women, Instantly Regrets It
Since the second that Donald Trump was declared as our next president, liberals have not stopped complaining about the outcome, even after more than a year and a half with him in the White House. The loudest of the shrieking libs are Hollywood celebrities, actor George Clooney being one of the worst.
Clooney is a major advocate for Muslims and Islamic Americans, which is probably why he married one. He’s held his tongue recently, but has just resurfaced in a massive attack on our president that didn’t pan out too well for him.
Breitbart reports the details of Clooney quickly regretting his erroneous claim that Trump says to fear Muslims and strong women:
Nothing was off the table at Variety magazine’s Power of Women luncheon held in Beverly Hills on Friday, almost exactly a year since The New York Times and The New Yorker published accounts from dozens of women alleging sexual misconduct by the once-powerful movie mogul Harvey Weinstein. In his remarks before attendees, actor and immigration activist George Clooney admonished what he called the Trump administration’s culture of fear.
George Clooney, who announced himself to a packed ballroom at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons in Beverly Hills as “Amal’s husband,” quickly struck a serious tone, accusing the President Donald Trump of using fear to divide Americans.
“Fear of Muslims. Fear of immigrants. Fear of minorities. Fear of strong women,” George Clooney began. “And because our government needs us to be afraid, the question is, are we really scared of all the things that actually make America great? And if the answer is yes, then we’ll have history to answer to. Because these are the ideas that will define us for generations.”
“After all the jokes, and insults, and reality show frenzy, what will be remembered, what will stand the test of time is holding responsible these wolves in wolves’ clothing,” Clooney continued.
“When you call an entire religion your enemy, you might very well make an enemy out of an entire religion. When you tell a whole race of people that you value them less, you can’t be surprised when they question your values,” the Ocean’s Eleven star added. “When you tell women that coming forward to testify about their abuse is a joke, don’t be shocked when they’re standing on your lawn, laughing on Nov. 7.”
In addition to criticizing the Trump administration, the actor lavished praise on anti-2nd Amendment activist and March for Our Lives leader Emma Gonzalez. “She made us listen to her heart,” he said. “A heart that believes that we as a country can be so much better. A heart that called for adults to act like adults so children don’t have to.”
Gonazelz, wiping away tears, said to the women in her own speech: “You know that you are forces to be reckoned with. You can and have inspired peace and understanding and most importantly right now, you can inspire your audience to vote. Now more than ever, women need to continue to rise up.”
In a commanding 15-minute speech, actress Natalie Portman addressed the underrepresented women in all industries and laid out guidelines to incite change, such as donating to Time’s Up, opting against depicting violence against women in films, and hiring women for positions they’re not typically considered for. She was being recognized for her humanitarian efforts in co-founding Time’s Up, a legal defense fund that was created following the rise of the #MeToo movement to address and combat inequality in the workplace.
“Be embarrassed if everyone in your workplace looks like you,” Portman said.
Portman said Weinstein is “still free” because “our culture protects the perpetrators of sexual violence, not its victims.” She added that the Time’s Up defense fund has served more than 3,500 people from “workers at McDonald’s to prison guards to military personnel to women in our own industry who have faced gender-based harassment, coercion and assault.”
The event, presented by Lifetime, with sponsors such as Audi, Morocco Oil, and The Venetian Resort, honored Tiffany Haddish, who spoke about the non-profit The Unusual Suspects Theatre Company and Participant Media CEO David Linde for helping to make female-focused films from Roma to RBG.
Transgender Steamrolls Biological Women to Win World Cycling Championship
Dear Women, how do you like your world now? This is just another great thing brought to us from political correctness. Look at what the democrats have done to this world.
This is absolutely ridiculous and a affront to women and women’s sports.
From Louder With Crowder:
One of the up-and-coming trends on the left is trannies getting a stranglehold on sports. Gender-bending guys beating the bejeezus out of ladies in MMA. Transitioning girls on the juice competing against girls not on ‘roids. All in a days work for loopy lefties.
Now, there’s guys lapping the ladies in world championship bike races:
A biological male who identifies as a transgender woman won a women’s world championship cycling event on Sunday.
Rachel McKinnon, a professor at the College of Charleston, won the women’s 35-39 age bracket at the 2018 UCI Masters Track Cycling World Championships in Los Angeles.
McKinnon celebrated the victory on Twitter, writing: “First transgender woman world champion…ever.”
“We cannot have a woman legally recognized as a trans woman in society, and not be recognized that way in sports,” McKinnon told USA Today.
“Focusing on performance advantage is largely irrelevant because this is a rights issue. We shouldn’t be worried about trans people taking over the Olympics. We should be worried about their fairness and human rights instead.”
In other words, screw biology. Let’s make all our decisions based on feels instead.
There’s a reason why we have divisions and weight classes in sports. Otherwise, 250-pound ex-cons named Butch would be getting into the octagon with 5’4” soccer moms who “thought this would be fun.” Divisions and weight classes are there to make sure nobody has an unfair advantage. Like a guy in lady clothes steamrolling over biologically inferior females on a bicycle.
Yep, we have to completely ignore the bulge in “her” tights and herald her as the peak of female athleticism. Because “rights.” The real women who gave it their all and pedaled their keisters off will just have to deal with it. Pathetic.
